An Acetate wedding card

Hello blogger peeps, It's Friday already weekend has almost arrived here. I have been experimenting with acetate nowadays. Even though, I have used it before, but it was for shakes, and layers etc. Now I am trying some stamping on it. I first did it 4 days back, I used white pigment ink to stamp on acetate, but failed miserable, as the ink didn't get dried at all.
Yesterday I posted an acetate card on Instragram, @rahmat.ccc. Have a peek, since that card has not made it to the blog yet. Anyways That was my first card with stamping. After finding success with stamping on acetate, I decided to use solid stamps this time, and made this card yesterday night.
I started with using Curtain Call's flowers as my color inspiration here. I stamped the Altenew Vintage roses on a water color paper, and fussy cut to add later on the card.
Then I used the Archival dye ink to stamp the solid leafs and rose buds on the acetate. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped on a textured card stock.
I added the same card stock on the inside too, but not full length, but just a panel, to write.
I added the fussy cut flowers using foam adhesives, and a few gold jewels to finish off.
